Injury concerns for Limerick hurlers

Sean Finn will return from injury for this Saturday's game against Kilkenny.

FRESH injury worries emerged in the Limerick camp during the Bank Holiday Weekend Munster Senior Hurling Championship loss to Clare at the TUS Gaelic Grounds.

Influential players Seán Finn and Cian Lynch both retired early. Finn didn’t reappear after half-time owing to a knee issue and Lynch pulled-up shortly after the restart with a hamstring problem.

Manager John Kiely said Lynch “felt a pinch” in the hamstring so there was no point in risking it becoming a more significant injury.

“It was a knee injury with Seán. I don’t know the extent of it. We’ll probably have to get a scan of it during the week and see where it’s at.”

Captain Declan Hannon, who suffered a hamstring injury in the opening round win over Waterford, make a miraculous recovery to line-out in his customary number six position.
